Seventh Framework Programme FP7

Objectives

The projects high level objectives may be summarised as:

Highly-Optimised Composite Fuselage:

 

  • Enable a high-production rate: 50% reduction of the assembly time of fuselage section
  • Reduce the manufacturing and assembly recurring costs by 10% compared to the ALCAS equivalent reference
  • Reducing weight by 10%, compared to best available solutions on similar fuselage sections (F7X, A320 and TANGO fuselage)


Faster Development:

 

  • Reduce by 20% the current development timeframe of aircraft composite structures from preliminary design up to full-scale test
  • Reduce by 10% the non-recurring cost of aircraft composite structures from preliminary design up to full-scale test (ALCAS reference)


Right-First-Time Structure:

 

  • Reduce the airframe development costs by 5% compared with the equivalent development steps in an industrial context
